Want to borrow - R160/180/200 diff housing or whole diff

As the title says - I just need something to fit so I can temporarily fit a 510 rear crossmember, an empty housing with a backplate would be ideal but a whole diff would work. I seem to have sold all my surplus ones and I'm not ready to fit my good diff and crossmember yet. :roll:

Re: L18 head gasket ?

There shouldn't be any issues with the blocks or cranks, both are very stout (steel crank) and should be able to take horsepower levels well above standard. Reasonably priced engines abound, making them fit into where an L series was gets expensive. My advice is just fix the engine you have. Don't f...

Re: L16 inlet/exhaust gasket problems

Even a cheap gasket should be ok. In my experience the leaks usually arise from having aftermarket intake or exhaust manifolds with different thicknesses/contact areas on the spreader washers. I made stepped washers once to try to resolve it. Are you running a header or side draught manifold? Other ...

Re: scooters 260C H330

Glad I'm not the only one who always seems to find bronze used for repairs from back in the day.

Nice to see this is still around and getting some love, it's definitely one of the nicest condition 330's I've seen.

Re: My '72 1600 SSS

Yeah probably a good idea. Dirt I'm ok with, massive fuel leaks and fireballs not so much.

Re: My '72 1600 SSS

Got all sad seeing all these running driveable 1600s at the Nationals and decided to have a selfish weekend and just work on my own cars (mostly the daily unfortunately). Cleaned the garage up a bit to make some room also - here you can just see the 5mm alloy rock deflector/bash plate I made up to p...

Re: 260c car pinion lock

I had that problem with my 260C, annoying af when the door just bounces off the latch. I'm guessing you've also figured out that you can click the latch back one position with your finger to make it shut in the meantime.

Try messaging brocky and see if he has any good ones also
